Just kidding, she didn't.

This is a classic bait and switch. You basically deserve this for reading through RSP threads, so don't look for any sympathy from me. In fact, if you didn't like this sort of thing you wouldn't still be here.

Anyhoo, you have responded to the keywords of "Mobile Gaming" and "Comic Books". Marvel Puzzle Quest is a free and mostly enjoyable game on iOS and Android. It's on PC, too, but it's not cross platform, so this offer won't be for you.

The folks over at FBRSP, a super secret FB group whose mission is primarily to piss each other off and feel superior to the unwashed BGG RSP masses, have started an alliance in MPQ (it's what the cool kids are calling it).

BGG All-Stars

If you show up and play the game (with any luck, daily), you will be appreciated.

If you show up and act like an asshat, you will be kicked. Or if you show up and then don't show up ever again, you will asked to leave to make room for someone else eventually.


That's pretty much it. There are no rules about mandatory number of hours or PVP events or what not. We don't talk religion or sex or politics. We're just people who play the game and met each other mostly in RSP and try not to think too much about how half of the alliance is voting for pure evil in the next election cycle.

So how are you guys dealing with the shift from 3 stars to 4 stars? I found that a rather big turn off tbh, as I don't play enough to earn covers with any consistency. I'd be less annoyed if I could also send a team of 3 stars vs some challenge for one of those purp coins but you need a pretty high lvl 4 star to get more, so it's really a win more mechanic. Plus there's so many now that it's a rather diluted pool.

Simple, none of us are even close to worrying about that yet. The stronger players are still shifting from 2* to 3*. Or from 1* to 2*.

Ah, I've been playing on/off since launch so I have full max cover 3 stars, I just log in daily and do the taco dailies and a few rounds of whatever sotry event then call it a day. I just don't have enough ISO to max lvl them so 90% of the covers end up getting vendored still.

Well, you're welcome to get daily tacos with us. We're of course not going to be winning any awards for strong placement as an alliance yet. We hit 5005/18607 last season.

We'd place better with more members, though. I was 37/5000 last season, for example.

Based on how the scaling seems to work, we may drop in the rankings as more people join, depending on where they are in the game.

I tend to avoid any game with Puzzle in the title or description.

I understand the hesitation. I really dislike Candy Crush. But not all match three games are alike. This one requires both strategy and tactics, has beautiful artwork, and is actually fun to play. It's not very puzzle-like.

I'll give you a free "Pokey Man" if you sign up. That's the best I can do.

I tried this game for a little while two years ago, then quit:
Video Games Ambivalently Continued by VGGers in 2014

Then I tried it again for a little while last year, and quit again:
Item for Geeklist "Video Games Abandoned by VGGers in 2015"

Lengthier rants for why this game annoys me at those links. Suffice to say, I won't be fooled a third time, especially with a library full of other games. (Admittedly, I did recently get lulled back into Marvel Heroes, which is a free to play Diablo clone in the Marvel universe. And just back into Warframe, a free to play robot ninja FPS. But still.)

So, you're sayin' there's a chance!

Is this still a thing? I actually broke down and started playing but I don't see an Alliance by the name in the OP.

Nintendo just launched a breath of fire game didn't they? I was eyeballing it but I don't have any knowledge of the franchise so I wasn't really enamored. As for match 3 games with entertaining powers, I think the biggest one is puzzles & dragons. The MTG one sucks balls and I'd avoid it like the plague.

Personally I rather enjoy Marvel MPQ, its a decent experience for 10-20 minutes for someone who plays once daily.
